Birmingham Children's Hospital
This city centre hospital is a leading UK specialist paediatric centre, offering expert care to 90,000children and young people from across the country every year.
“No child wants to spend time in hospital, but for many of our patients the Birmingham Children’s Hospital is their second home.
Some are born with conditions that mean they will need ongoing treatment and operations throughout their lives. Some may need a transplant while others may only be with us for a few days.
Foe however long our patients are here, the money you kindly donate will be put to good use. We depend on donations to ensure that we are providing the best possible care and patient experience for all our children and their families.”
